One day, a shounen anime writer will put his fingers on the keys of his computer, and freeze up. Because all the ideas will have dried up. This is already happening with screenwriters in Hollywood. Don't believe me? The Dukes of Hazzard film. The Miami Vice film. The X-Men films. The Harry Potter films. The big-screen version of the Transformers cartoon series. And so on.Even the recent The Producers film - a screen adaptation of a stage musical based on an existing film. And of course, the upcoming live-action version of Dragonball Z. When they have to resort to making films of a musical of a film, and even an anime series (THE crappiest example of Shonen IMO), then the next sound you'll hear is that of metal scraping against wood. Because the screenwriters & producers in Hollywood have gone through the bottom of the concepts barrel to find the last subatomic particle of a new idea, and have reached the floor underneath. And Shonen/Seinen anime is starting to go the same way. Proof? Golgo 13. Cobra. The dessiccated corpses of animes from decades ago reanimated (pun intended). Because there's almost NO new ideas left. Certainly in Shonen/Seinen, that's for sure.
